What is Cold Laser Therapy?
This treatment uses low levels of light, is noninvasive, and helps promote the healing of inflamed tissues. The lasers are not heat generating, and it helps increase circulation and blood flow for pain and inflammation. Cold laser therapy can also be known as low power or low level laser therapy, photobiomodulation, and soft laser biostimulation. It has been around over 40 years and is a trusted source of non-medication pain therapy.
How do Cold Lasers Work for Pain?
The laser will penetrate deep into the tissue leading to a chemical change. This change makes damaged cells regenerate and renew. The laser is held onto the area for about 60 seconds and then moves to a different area to treat. Typically, treatment can take only half an hour, depending on how many areas are treated.
What are Some Conditions Cold Therapy is Used For?
Some of the conditions that cold laser therapy is used for include:
• Carpal tunnel syndrome
• Plantar Fasciitis
• Osteoarthritis, and other Arthritis conditions
Is Cold Laser Therapy Right for You?
Going over your condition, medical history, and your options should be the first thing. Determining if this is a suitable treatment will prompt a thorough overview of your needs. It is not advised for those who are pregnant or are undergoing cancer treatment.
